Let’s Go Somewhere

Let’s travel to Aruba…….Aruba is an independent country in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, with a population of approximately 100,000. The island is 21 miles (33km) long and has an area of about 75 square miles (193 km2).

Temperature:   If you are planning a trip to Aruba, you can count on plenty of sunshine. However, there is a “rain” season in which sometimes heavy showers can surprise you. Rainfall averages about eighteen inches a year, with October, November, December and January accounting for most of it. Even then rains tend to be erratic and in short bursts.

A bustling and ever expanding tourist attraction, the beach is covered with sunbathing vacationers, food and drink stands and booths of water sport operators. There are also two piers lined with restaurants and shops, which offer entertainment as well as some much needed shade. This stretch of beach, northwest of the capital city of Oranjestad, is the hub for day and nighttime activities. The trendiest place in Aruba, Palm Beach is where you go for great snorkeling as well as good people-watching.

There are many different water sports offered on this beach including jet skiing and tubing. Eagle Beach is perfect for someone looking to relax and also adventure seekers.
